any higher than mid-thigh isn' really functional in my eyes....tights or not

I'm not a huge fan of mini skirts, so I would never go shorter than mid-thigh. Most of my skirts are right around knee-length, maybe a tad shorter.

a couple inches above the knee, but no higher than that! my legs are on the thicker side, so I try not to jiggle too much...

Between mid-thigh and knee. I've got meaty legs. Anything shorter makes me look like I'm walking on drumsticks.

It depends on the skirt but I never wear mini-skirt that short as in the picture. I come from a family pretty strict and high class so they would never approve that.

I have a very long torso and very short legs. I can pull off the shortest skirts and still look decent. People always think they're gonna see something, and they never do. I've been told I have "skirt magic." On top though, I've gotta cover up or I look way too vavoom for daily wear.

it depends on the purpose of the skirt but if it's for play rather than work - mid thigh is good for me but if it's a work thing, then i'll wear a skirt to my knee usually.

Obviously it depends on where I'm going and the type of skirt, but in no event would I wear anything as short as what the model in the picture is wearing. My booty is a little too big for that. Mid-thigh I guess.

Totally depends on the context! My skirt suits never go (much) higher than the knee, but if I'm going out somewhere fun I might wear a little bit shorter skirt...usually with tights, though, unless it's a summer BBQ or something either very casual or very glammed up.

Short legs and pear-shaped so I don't like to go too high or low from the knees. I might go a little higher if h'm wearing a dark skirt and dark tights but still nowhere near mid-thigh.

I rarely wear skirts... maybe once every 3 years and mid-thigh is as far as I will go.

Mid thigh is where I draw the line because I am 6foot girl and anything on my legs looks 3 inches shorter than on everyone else. Hehe!

I'm bottom heavy so the shortest I'll go is maybe an inch above the knee.

if the skirt is too short I'll usually wear tights or something but I won't go anywhere a mini skirt (anymore haha). I've outgrown that q:

Depends on whether or not I'm wearing tights. Tights in the winter make me bold. But generally I stop at mid-upper thigh.
